We recently discovered an alternative to Hawaiian Musubi at Noelani’s Bar and Lounge in San Carlos, California (near Palo Alto). It is their version that uses Portuguese Sausage instead of the traditional Spam.
As anyone who has been to Hawaii knows, Spam is one of the state’s most favorite “meat” ingredients, and it is key to a good Hawaiian musubi. Musubi itself is defined in Wikipedia as “Spam musubi is a popular snack and lunch food in Hawaii composed of a slice of grilled Spam on top of a block of rice, wrapped together with nori dried seaweed in the tradition of Japanese omusubi“.
Regardless of the Spam, the snack is quite good and filling, and we can see why it is addictive.
